Global warming is a major concern practically everywhere outside of the White House. Because the Bush administration refuses to act on this matter, mayors across the land began taking matters into their hands around 2002. Seattle's mayor, Greg Nickels, started a movement to get cities to adopt the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. The Agreement can be accessed on the City of Seattle's website. As of Nov. 15, 330 mayors representing some 53.3 million Americans have signed on and taken the challenge to meet or beat the goals of the Kyoto Protocol of 1997.

Global warming has caught the attention of scientists and ecologists, so it was only a matter of time before a playwright took notice. In the case of "The Ice-Breaker" — opening Feb. 17 in its southern California premiere engagement at the Laguna Playhouse, following a week of previews — that playwright, David Rambo, already had a pretty steady day job. He's been on the writing staff of the TV drama series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation"...

The toxic algae bloom — or "red tide" — that has killed dozens of sea birds and mammals in local waters recently is mystifying marine experts and fanning local concerns about global warming. Some people are convinced that human-made pollutants are at the root of the algae, a naturally occurring plant form that is a food source for fish at lower levels of the marine food chain, such as krill and crustaceans. Researchers are reporting the highest levels ever seen of this algae and the neurotoxin domoic acid that is carried in it, which is alarming news.

Winter is almost here. It’s freezing. I can’t remember it ever being this cold. So cold in fact that there was a frost advisory in Laguna Beach — so much for global warming. My phone has been ringing at 6 a.m. with the latest surf reports. It’s looking like we should have plenty of swell the next couple of days with a strong possibility of more rain. Speaking of waves, a big congratulations to San Clemente’s Greg Long for becoming the first Californian to win the Eddie Aikau Invitational.

Lagunans are invited to turn off their lights and walk through town during Earth Hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. March 28. The Earth Hour project is sanctioned by the City Council. Earth Hour 2009 is a global climate event led by the World Wildlife Fund.

The Laguna Beach Council will be asked tonight, Oct. 16,┬áto take steps to clear the air and the city of cigarette butts, light spill and Styrofoam. Mayor Toni Iseman believes that Laguna Beach should follow the example of Orange County and the cities of Irvine, Seal Beach, Fountain Valley and Laguna Hills, which have ordinances banning smoking in public parks. “The ordinance would reduce the influence of second-hand smoke, but equally important, it would reduce obnoxious litter,” Iseman said.
